I'm off to Cuba at the end of August for my Honeymoon! (Sorry Jadey, I'm off the market!8-))

But I was just wondering, what with that special and lovely relationship Cuba and the US of A have, what's the BlackBerry conectivity like over there??

(Yes, I know taking my BlackBerry on my Honeymoon is going to bring me a divorce very quickly, but hey! I'm an addict!)

Also, anyone know anything kool to see while I'm over there?

I don't think cuba has BB connectivity

Is the network there capable of handling such technology?

Sounds like a question for you carrier.

But on the GSMworld website, roaming partners for the Cuban company Empresa de Telecommunicaciones de Cuba, SA (ETECSA) lists Vodafone UK and vise versa.

Cheers Monkey,
Yeah, I've found it'll work in cube for voice/sms, but it's the whole data side of things, from what I've seen so far there is ust no suck thing as a data network over there.

Ho hum! never mind, I guess the Wife will just have to get all my attention!

If your going to Havana a must see is Al Capone's hotel (still in it's 1920 glory) that has pink flamingos wandering the courtyard and the fort in Havana is also a must see. In Varadero is Earnest Hemmingway's house as well as miles of white sandy beaches.

If you wanted to you could go see Gitmo before it gets shut down, just watch out for the mine fields.

Anyway, Congrats.
